Come enjoy one of the great lost traditions of small town America: the pie social. Our friends at Whole Foods Market are bringin’ the pie, so you know it’s gonna be good eats. Pie is served at 2 p.m. and Cora Vette and the Vinyl Tops take the stage at 2:30 p.m. Fun for all ages! We’ll be meeting on the Acoma Plaza for this fun community event, and in the case of inclement weather, we’ll move to our B2 Conference Center. All free, but registration is encouraged.

Dr. Seth Tucker leads this two-part workshop on writing poetry. The first session will be focused on getting your thoughts down on paper – and the poetic elements that change words to art. Return for the second evening and talk about bringing an editor’s eye to your writing. Students will share written work and assist each other through critiques. Seth’s poetry manuscript, “Mormon Boy,” won the 2011 Elixir Press Editor’s Poetry Prize, and was published in early 2012. Learn more about Seth at lighthousewriters.org.
